Sister Diane Marie Ulsamer, SSJ is presently the coordinator for the city-wide Religious Education program for people with disabilities. The program provides spiritual development for children and adults of all ages.

All are welcome to join the weekly sessions regardless of race, sex, creed, disability, or national origin. We believe that Jesus came to bring God's love to all people. Therefore, we strive to continue this mission of Jesus by sharing His teachings and love with all who desire to learn more about God.
